We lead a pretty busy life in our home. I’m not sure why, but it’s just that way. We aren’t stressed nor overwhelmed (well, not all the time lol), but definitely busy. Mom’s tend to have a busy life, simply due to the nature of our daily in’s and out’s. Also, if you are a homeschool mom, I’m sure you would agree that life is all the more busy with lesson planning, teaching, and keeping up with everything else that is part of our day.
I grew up playing the piano, learning to play instruments is almost a second nature expectation that I want my kids to have. I am teaching my kids how to play the piano and love it! Recently my oldest has expressed an interest in guitar lessons. While I’m willing to take her to and from lessons, we would love the option of taking those lessons in the comfort of our home. Wherever we can find a way to simplify our life, we love to take full advantage of it! That could be with an instructor that comes to our home, or through an online class.
Finding a reputable instructor or music school is not that easy. You need to consider credentials, experience, and the background of this person who will be teaching your child.
TakeLessons connects students and families with private music teachers, arts instructors and academic tutors throughout the US. They’ve been in business since 2006, and have worked with over 30,000 students nationwide!
That’s not all…
Safety and quality is their priority; every instructor is required to have either a Bachelors Degree in a music field OR equivalent teaching experience. They also complete an extensive interview, training, and an annual criminal background check. For more information on how they select their instructors, check out this video:
TakeLessons.com provides the following lesson options:
- In Home
- Studio Lessons
- Online Lessons (via Skype)
**Online Lessons are via Skype. So all you need is a computer with a webcam, a Skype account and a good internet connection. Not only would this cut down any commute time (think saving on gas money), but your kiddo will also be taking the lessons from the comfort of their own home. This is a great option if you have younger children as well, which can often times create unpredictable moments. Your little one can be taking a nap, or you can be doing a school lesson with another child, while the other is taking their online class!
A bit more about their lessons:
- Over 30 lesson types available, including guitar, singing, piano, drums, violin, dance, acting, and academic tutoring
- Most popular lesson package is Quarterly (book 12 lessons, get 1 free). Other packages include month-to-month and Flex (coordinate lesson times as you go along with your instructor)
